I have always wondered about people who spend a large amount of time wondering what if. What if they had done this instead of that? How would their lives be different if they had made decision rather than another? What if they had the nerve to throw caution to the wind and make a change or take a chance? What if they had paid more attention when they could have, would this all have come out different like a giant ripple affect altering the course life and perception of ability. What if....?
What if you wasted all your life wondering what if..........? What if you just decided that the inviting sight of the deep end of the pool was a calling you could not ignore? What if you just let go and move on with the life you have left rather than holding on to the baggage that is currently causing you to drowned in a sea of regret? Time is precious and you only get so much of it. What you do with this time is completely up to you, but in my opinion kicking yourself for the decisions you never made doesn't help one little bit with the decisions you need to make.
I have honestly thought about removing the rear view mirror from my automobile simply because I don't like the idea of looking back. I like the idea of looking away even less. Problems in this life only have a way of taking care of themselves when they are not your problems. So focusing on the issues at hand and not looking away from them is the best way to clear your path for forward progress. Looking back only holds you back, because what is done is done and that will never change no matter how much time you spend wondering what if.......
The world around you will not wait for you to catch up, this I can assure you. You just have to chase down what you want and what you want is ahead of you not behind you. It's always a good idea to learn from the past, but it's a complete waste to live in it. There is no rewind nor fast forward, so you just have to accept what's gone and look ahead to what's on the way, because like it or not, here it comes. So what if you took the time to free yourself from your own caged mind and told your feet to start moving forward? You may be surprised by the outcome.
